Day Camp

Run by Camp Amicus

About this Day Camp

  • Day Camp
  • Age 8 - 13 (Coed)
  • Specialized in Traditional (multi activity) and Sport (multi)—offers 17 activities
  • 2 session dates to choose from
  • Cost starting from $350
  • Busing not available
  • Special needs support available  

This camp is designed to build the following character traits:

  • Interpersonal skills: Many children with Learning Disabilities and ADHD struggle with making and keeping friends. We support campers to develop social skills and improve peer relationships by providing social skills instruction which is reinforced throughout the day.
  • Self-regulation: Many children with Learning Disabilities and ADHD struggle with self-regulation. We support campers to develop self-regulation skills with explicit teaching and reinforcement of skills and techniques they can use at camp and beyond.

Campers entering grades 3 - 8 will have opportunities to learn and practice age-appropriate social skills, peer relations & problem-solving. Mature, caring counsellors plan activities to ensure that campers build confidence and self-esteem while having a great time!

With only 24 campers and a 3:1 ratio of campers to counsellors, participants are able to get individualized attention.

Camp Goals:

The goals of Camp Amicus are to increase the campers’ self-esteem, make friends, learn social skills, have a ton of fun and make lasting friendships!

We implement social skills lessons throughout the course of the camp during explicit lesson periods and throughout the rest of the day with low ratio social coaching when the campers are engaging in regular camp activities. Real ­life situations provide opportunities for practice and reinforcement of the skills learned.

Based out of Foothills Academy in Calgary, Camp Amicus Day Camp takes place from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday to Friday for a one-week or two-week period. The camp focuses on teaching and reinforcing social skills in a fun and safe environment.

Days are spent developing social skills with direct instruction in the morning and supporting this learning through real-world experiences on field trips and through choice programs, clubs and small trips to the garden in the afternoon. The two-week camp provides campers lots of opportunities to practice the social skills they learn. With a variety of activities offered throughout the day, there is something for every camper and opportunities to try new things.

Dates and Time:

Camps take place Monday to Friday from 9 am to 4 pm. Most of the Day Camps are two-weeks long. Day camp is not offered on statutory holidays and the fee is adjusted accordingly.

Activities Offered:

Camp activities may include Social Skills, swimming, 3-D printing, music, games, field trips, crafts & more! 

Before and After Care: 

Before and After Care is offered from 8 am - 9 am and from 4 pm to 5 pm each day. The cost is $25/week for each (ie. if you use both Before and After Care, the charge is $50 per week).

The fee is eligible for FSCD funding. We are able to bill FSCD directly for camp fees. There is also bursary assistance available on a sliding scale basis. Learn more here:
